1) Mission and Responsibilities of the Decision Committee

  1. The mission of the Decision Committee is to take decisions on issues which have been discussed in the project technical meeting (also known as the working group). Generally the working group has agreed that the issue should go to the decision committee. In the event of a disagreement on even this, the strong view of one member can be enough to bring an issue to this committee.

  2. Issues marked as ‘For Review’ in the process are considered by the committee

  3. Outcomes for a given issue are: Accepted, Rejected. Exceptionally (and unanimously) the meeting can agree to defer an issue.

2) Conduct of Meetings

  1. Meetings will be limited to member representatives and follow the requirements for quorum and voting outlined in this Charter. 

  2. The meeting will be chaired by a representative from Linaro. In the event that a Linaro representative is unable to attend, the meeting can appoint an acting chair subject to the rules of Quorum and Voting, below.

  3. Should a representative be unable to attend, they may designate a named delegate to act on their behalf, including any voting responsibilities and commitments. The name of the delegate shall be provided to the meeting organizer at least 1 hour prior to the start of the meeting.

  4. Meeting discussions are confidential amongst members but the decisions are public
